This is a tough one for me.  I personally hate all things UNC-CHeat, so they get my initial vote; but then I have to consider EZU.


The thing that riles me about EZU fans is their "holier than thou" attitude when it come to football with virtually nothing to show for it.  Since they began playing football in 1932, they've finished ranked in the AP poll twice (20th and 9th) and the coaches' poll twice (23rd and 9th).  That's twice in the AP poll which has been around for 82 years. 


Since they started CUSA twenty years ago they are 127-132.  Hell, if you go back to 1980, they are 219-230.  That number gets even uglier if you throw out the outlier 11-1 season in 1991 where they got ranked 9th as an independent (which was bookended by 5-6 losing campaigns).  Even during their miracle campaign of 1991, they only beat one team during the regular season who ended with more than 6 wins (Syracuse, who was good) and then beat NCSU in a bowl. 

In that time period (since 1980) roughly 1/3 of their seasons were 4 or fewer wins and 20 out of 37 seasons were losing seasons.   


Their football history is pretty much the definition of run-of-the-mill/average, but I have to sit around and listen to them rodomontade about their program.  This isn't relative to our program or anything, it's simply that their fans act as if they are Alabama or Auburn.


And we all know what an atrocity their basketball program is.  Of course, most of them are EZU foosball fans and CHeat basketball fans, so they just say "we're a football school."

Are we talking historically?

Under "other", I'd put:
Memphis fans
George Washington fans
Xavier/Dayton fans
Richmond fans

It's been awhile since we even played these teams, and it's been even longer since we were relevant against them. It's hard to get worked up about any current CUSA fanbases since we've been so terrible since coming into the conference.

Once upon a time, Cincinnati would have been high on this list, but then we got to know some of their fans. They won me over when they came to town and were bitching about a lack of pre-game coverage by the Observer.

App fans since the second we announced football have been trying to undermine our program. Hardly any other fanbase gives Charlotte the slightest thought at this point.

Their attitude would be a lot different without a few key wins against State and UNC. This goes to show you that that one great season and a few key wins can change the perspective of both serious and casual fans about a program.

For another example of this phenomenon see Davidson basketball.

I will say that the cheat fans are bad. When we went there for a college visit last year THEY WOULD NOT STOP TALKING ABOUT THEIR BASKETBALL TEAM!!!  It got to the point of embarrassment it was so bad.

I picked Cheat for most annoying in-state, but now that Charlotte doesn't compete with them I don't know.  But historically it would be Cheat fans - they seem to ooze uninformed arrogance.  Nationally I'd say Vols and Georgia fans are very close to being the most annoying, very closely followed by Texas and Notre Dame fans.

Cheat fans because so many of them did not actually go to school there.  I can't stand fans that talk mad s*** but outside of buying a tshirt have NO connection to the school.


App fans because they love to talk s*** during football seasons and then they all become Chapel Hill fans during basketball.


Those are my top 2.

Unc cheat because of the walmart fans. Yes, we aren't good enough to have walmart fans I know. Maybe one day.

Our fan base in the off season with their crazy freaking predictions on the upcoming season's success. Some fans are drunk on green koolaid or don't know college basketball. They may be happy fans though which more power to them.

I agree with the wal mart fan viewpoint.

Here is a question.

If you didnít go to college or went to a school with no athletics, who is it appropriate to pull for?  When is it appropriate to pull for another school at all?

Hereís my take on how this all breaks down.  This is rough, suggestions for improvement and additional categories are welcome.

1.  Your Alma mater - pulling for a school more than your Alma mater or not supporting your Alma mater at all is a sin and an affront to polite society and I think we can all agree on that.

2.  A school that an immediate family member is an alumnus of or student at - acceptable but can never be supported more than your own school.

3.  The local college - acceptable - if you donít have an Alma mater or family connection to a school perhaps you live near a college. Acceptable to support the local team that is part of your community. This is the lowest level of acceptable serious fanship.

4.  Supporting a non flagship school in your state that is outside of your own educational experience, family experience or community.  - this is dicey. Perhaps you truly have no affiliation with a school and live no where near a college team. Acceptable to be a casual fan but becoming a serious fan at this level seems spurious. Perhaps following pro teams is your best bet here.

5.  - Supporting the high athletic achieving flagship (or most successful athletic program) in your state, despite having no educational, family or community connection and NOT being an alumnus of another school. - people at this level are sad, annoying and perhaps deserve some pity. This is where you see the fans that live and die by a teams success despite the fact they have zero connection to the school. This level is pathetic.


6. - Supporting the high athletic achieving flagship (or most successful athletic program) in your state, despite having no educational, family or community connection, but you ARE an alumnus of another school. - at this level your basically consigning your soul to hell, if you even have one. If you had soul you would be supporting your own school.

7. - Supporting the high athletic achieving flagship (or most successful athletic program) in your state, despite having no educational, family or community connection, but you ARE an alumnus of another school, AND your support includes financial support beyond tickets and tee shirts.  - at this level your basically a criminal.

Thoughts??
